routines for one more commu >> your realtime captioner: linda marie macdonald. there were a lot of sleepy quiet people apparently got up a little bit earlier. the bay bridge closure shaking up people's routines for one more commute before the holiday weekend. >> and so far, it's been smooth sailing for crews putting the finishing touches on the new span as we look live. caltrans says it's still on
12:01 pm
track to make that deadline come tuesday. good afternoon, i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. we'll have more on the bay bridge progress in just a bit. but first, we're following developing news. within the past few minutes, president obama called syria's use of chemical weapons, quote, a challenge to the world and a threat to national security. >> we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well-established international norms against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan, and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorist who is might use them against us. >> the president said he made
12:02 pm
no decision yet but he is considering limited and narrow action against syria. earlier a declassified intelligence report was released laying out some of the evidence against syrian president bashar assad's government. cbs reporter danielle nottingham has that part of the story. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry arrived at the white house for a national security council meeting weighing a possible military strike against syria. in the 90-minute briefing last night, president obama's national security team told congressional leaders there's no doubt syria used poison gas to kill hundreds of civilians. >> we know where the rockets were launched from and at what time. we know where they landed and when. we know rockets came only from regime-controlled areas. >> reporter: since the suspected chemical attack in the suburbs of damascus last week, the obama administration has been building the case syrian president bashar assad
12:03 pm
should be punished with a military strike. last night, america's closest ally britain said no to military action. while the white house had hoped for britain's participation, advisors say the president is prepared for the possibility of unilateral action. france did say today it would go ahead with plans to strike syria. some lawmakers from both parties are not convinced the u.s. should take military action. >> there are problems if we take action. there are problems if we don't take action. >> reporter: president obama has said any u.s. military intervention in syria would be limited and tailored. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the white house. >> again just moments ago, president obama saying syria's alleged use of chemical weapons threatens national security interests. the president says he is weighing limited action in syria. we also got updated numbers from the white house. more than 1400 were killed by the attack, 426 of those were children. and a live look now at the
12:04 pm
big board on the final trading day of the month. invests are paying close attention to talk of a military strike in syria. right now you can see the dow is down about 25 points. investigators in san jose are looking into two officer- involved shootings within four hours of each other overnight. the first happened at king road and alum rock avenue around 1 a.m. the second at west san carlos and lincoln avenue. kpix 5's cate caugiran joins us live with the latest on what happened. cate. >> reporter: we are at that second location. san jose police say the officer fired at that suspect just here off of san carlos and lincoln right in front of that building over there. he made his way here a couple blocks from where he tried to rob a grocery store and this was the second officer-involved shooting overnight making for a busy morning for san jose police. investigators spent the morning processing two different crime scenes. in the sunol midtown area at 4: 44 this morning officers responded to reports of an
12:05 pm
armed robbery at the safeway on san carlos and meridien. >> the person did not comply with the officer's demand, was displaying a fire. the officer felt in fear for his life and discharged his firearm in the direction of the suspect. >> reporter: the suspect was not hit but fell down. officers arrested him and took him to santa clara county jail. hours earlier, another officer- involved shooting happened just after 1 a.m. this one in east san jose. police found a car involved with a robbery at mckee and king roads. >> when officers went to made exact the passenger fled the scene. the driver of the vehicle took off in a high rate of speed southbound on king road towards wilshire boulevard. >> reporter: officer albert morales says the car ended up crashing and police tried to approach the suspects inside. then the driver tried to run over an officer. >> the driver proceeded to go ahead and attempt to run over the officer. the officer in fear for his safety discharged his firearm
12:06 pm
striking the driver of the vehicle. >> reporter: that driver was taken to a local hospital. the other suspect ran away. police are still looking for him. at this point we do not have any suspect description. officers say the two shootings are not related and they did not have an update on the suspect who was shot in the car at 1:00 this morning. reporting live in san jose, cate caugiran, kpix 5. san jose police and the santa clara district attorney's office are investigating both incidents. also pinole police are investigating a double homicide at a home on tara hills road and appian way. officers were told there were people injured inside the home and when they arrived they found two bodies. a 25-year-old man was taken into custody at the scene. so far, they are saying it appears to be an isolated incident. one person is in critical condition after being pulled out of a burning home in san jose. crews just knocked out a fire on commodore drive and you can see the light smoke there coming from the roof. at one point, crews were
12:07 pm
worried that roof would collapse. one other person was sent to the hospital. and fire investigators are searching for the cause. right now, less than three days and seven hours to go until deadline. crews are working around the clock to get the new bay bridge ready for all that traffic. caltrans says it's on schedule. they are preparing new transition routes at both ends of the new span. they are also starting to remove the old cantilever section of the bridge. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in oakland where she got an update on the progress. anne. >> reporter: they say things have been going very well. the weather is certainly cooperating. it is beautiful outside right now. and they won't commit yet to any sort of early opening but if things keep going very smoothly, it is a possibility. this is what it's like to drive westbound on the bay bridge's new eastern span four days before it is set to open to us all. by tuesday, a shot like this will be almost impossible to
12:08 pm
acquire. the quiet elegance of the new span's tower next to the dusty mess of demolition of the old and the connection they share the toll plaza which has seen the lion's share of work during this closure so far. the roadway has been repaved and while it's not as sexy as the rest of the project -- >> you see less disabled vehicles when the road is smooth. we see less collisions when people are driving in the very clearly marked lanes. >> reporter: demolition of 1,000 feet of the old span continues, the section that's in the way of the new bike path. crews are chipping away the concrete deck then torching the steel underneath. >> it could be far enough along by saturday night where they could start bringing in sections of the bike path. >> reporter: so i'm standing on the newest bound lanes of the bay bridge. over here the new eastbound lanes and then the demolition in some cases going on only a foot away from where traffic will be driving next week. that's one reason they have to get parts of the demolition done now. >> this demolition work is in the critical path.
12:09 pm
it has to happen before the bridge opens. >> reporter: at the yerba buena tunnel crews are doing maintenance work and drivers will notice an improvement over the old "s" curve. >> pretty much a straight shot into the tunnel and straight shot coming out so they will be able to continue driving at 50 miles per hour. >> reporter: thousands of cars driving on that straight shot t- minus four days away. caltrans has been doing maintenance work on the west span of the bridge. right now they are giving reporters a tour of that work so we'll have that for you later on tonight here on kpix 5. live in oakland, anne makovec, kpix 5. and checking your alternates to the bay bridge shutdown, right now, san mateo bridge and the dumbarton bridge both great options to get around the closures. so here's actually a live look westbound and eastbound 92. maybe a little slow over the high-rise but for the most part moving at the limit. kind of a different story, unfortunately, over at the golden gate bridge. we are still seeing big delays especially on doyle drive and a little bit past the toll plaza
12:10 pm
now in the northbound lanes. there was an earlier stalled box truck in the macarthur tunnel that was there for two hours blocking one lane. it really messed up the community heading out of san francisco trying to get into marin county. also as part of the bay bridge closure they have had the three right lanes blocked off westbound 80 by powell street. this is in emeryville. we have some delays right there from university avenue. that's the latest from here in the traffic center. back to you. >> thank you, liz. we sent mobile5 out early this morning to hit the roads on day 2 of the commute without the bridge. some freeways were crowded but no major snarls to report. bart trains full again on the second day of the bridge closure. more than closure. at 5:00 this morning the trains were packed. >> i got on the 5:15 train and i was in the last seat which was unusual. so there were a lot of sleepy quiet people apparently got up
12:11 pm
a little bit earlier taking our advice and it work out well because although people were kind of grumpy at least they had a seat and were getting on their way. >> yesterday was bart's third busiest day ever in their hit. the only two busier days were note both giants world series victory parades. ferries had a billing jump in ridership yesterday. the san francisco bay ferry reported a nearly 60% boost an additional 1700 passengers and just like bart the parking lots and the ferries were filling up quickly this morning as people tried to get ahead of the crowds. we're here to help you plan out your weekend route. if you are coming from the east bay to the city check out our survival guide at firefighters try to slow the spread of the massive "rim" fire into yosemite. our first look at how a special drone is giving them a unique advantage from the skies. >> and a glowing duchess of cambridge makes her first appearance since giving birth. what the new parents had to say about their new little prince. >> hi, i'm meteorologist lawrence karnow in the kpix 5

200,000 acres. that makes the "rim" fire the fifth largest in california history. firefighters are using a new tool to get a bird's-eye view of the fire now. an unmanned drone aircraft began flying wednesday morning over the fire. since then it has helped crews spot fires and provided them with a more comprehensive fire map to fight it. let's get a check on weather here in the bay area because it's labor day weekend. >> this is it, guys. >> yes. >> the unofficial end of summer. i can't believe it. we didn't seem like we had much of a summer, did we? >> no kidding. >> today a good day outside lots of sunshine going to be the warmest day of the week. we have already had to adjust some of the temperatures upwards as they're soaring now. into san francisco that temperature is up to 76 degrees. 80 san jose. 82 concord. 72 degrees in oakland. lots of sunshine just a couple of patches of fog out toward the coastline. as we sail into the afternoon on this friday, looking good mostly sunny and nice. tonight we are goings to
12:16 pm
patchy, dense fog coastal drizzle, cooler sunday and labor day. that patchy fog beginning to break up just a finger of clouds out toward the coastline and that is it. looking like a good afternoon with these temperatures heating up outside. but this whole trough begins to drop into the bay area as we head in toward the weekend. that means some cooler weather in store for the bay area. around the state though as high as 103 degrees in fresno. 97 in sacramento. a lot of smoke in the high country temperatures running up to 98 degrees in yosemite 71 and partly cloudy skies into monterey bay. temperatures around our bay, 80s and some low 90s in the south bay. 60s out toward the coastline. going to see mid-90s toward brentwood. then inside the bay we're looking at lots of 70s, very nice weather outside indeed. changes for the weekend as those clouds will be gathering. our temperatures dropping slightly for tomorrow. but into sunday and monday, those temperatures probably headed below the average. cold front coming through on labor day. right now it doesn't look like rain. temperatures running a little bit cooler. >> you can still barbecue
